I wonder how difficult (possible?) it will be to adapt the original Catan Card Game to this new format. Obviously the art has changed as have many of the cards, but will an adaptation be possible using only cards from the original game? Personally, I hope so. While I will probably buy this game, I have enjoyed my original game quite a bit and don't want it to be simply replaced. If I could use my old cards to play with the new rules, that would make things just great.

I agree - I invested quite a bit getting 2 sets of the original and its expansions so as to be able to play the tournament game. It would be unfortunate if a set of better, streamlined rules were developed without taking account how the purchasers of the older sets could share in the benefit.

As much as I would like to own the new sets, I have to say it would be an overkill to own both the old and the new.

Agree. I have bought 2 complete sets as well. I won't buy it all over again unless it was something substantially greater to justify it.

Unfortunately I may have to buy it if the other goes out of print. I made the old noob mistake of rubberbanding my first set of expansion cards. ARRRRRRGGGGHHH!!

Yeah, I wonder if the old game will be the one to have if this reimplementation may turn out to be more sterile compared to the original....

It you've read any of the Catan blogs about it at Catan.com, I rather doubt it will be more sterile. They are overhauling everything and it looks pretty nice. In fact, it makes this old game look rather crappy. I have a feeling it won't get played much once Princes is in my collection
